Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruits, herbs and earthy spice, has 10% Petite Verdot in mix. On the palate concentrated flavors of black cherry, raspberry and black currant with espresso, mocha and vanilla oak notes. Good balance, lively acidity, fine soft ripe tannins, medium+ ending with fruit, cedar and herb pepper spice! Drink ‘15 now, seems to be at its best!

Nose is plum, leather, anise, and cocoa. The palate features dark cherry, blackberry, plum, leather, cranberry sauce, cocoa, cola, black tea, and cinnamon. High alcohol, high acid, medium tannin, and medium finish. Good depth and complexity, but could use a bit more vibrancy in the fruit.

Dark and big with smoke, blackberry, and oak. Tannins and structure to hold up to food but good enough to drink on it’s own.

Blackberry, oak, ash, and truffle. Big but not harsh with good acidity. Perfect with steak.

Dark inky color that is more black than red. The nose is big with dark fruit and spice featured. On the palate mulled fruit, black tea and cassis predominate. The finish, with more tannin than lasting acid, is not as strong as the nose or mid-palate, making it a little uneven.

This is one of my favorite wines. It is very smooth and rich but not over bearing. Fantastic!!!
